Media Mogul David Zaslav Is Tearing Up Hollywood

From a Wall Street Journal story by Joe Flint headlined “There’s a New Media Mogul Tearing Up Hollywood”:

Days into his role as CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery,  David Zaslav gathered movie-studio executives and grilled them about a recent string of box-office flops, including “Cry Macho,” a Clint Eastwood neo-Western.

Warner Bros. executives conceded they had doubted the movie would turn a profit. Why, Mr. Zaslav asked, was “Cry Macho” made if they had reservations? When they replied that Mr. Eastwood had given the studio many hits and never delivered a movie late or over budget, he answered: We don’t owe anyone any favors.
